It was really dark this morning. As I sat at my kitchen table for breakfast I looked outside. It was darker than usual. I could see the small spots of light dotting the neighborhood in the distance. But the darkness pretty much covered everything else. But soon something happened. To one side I could see the darkness getting a little lighter. Not so much black, but some blue now. So I looked over to the east and it was so neat. Some pink, some orange and a lot of gold. The sun was coming up and very quietly, but very majestically, overtaking the darkness, turning it into glorious, welcoming light. As I finished my Cheerios and got into my car in the daylight I thought about how different it was from just a little bit earlier this morning.
And then a song from Stellar Kart played. “Everything is Different Now.” How true that was! Everything was different now. The darkness was gone and though many people probably missed it, God had powerfully overtaken the dark sky as the sun came up with its quiet majesty. And its light changed everything.
Maybe you have some kind of darkness or difficult time in your life right now. There is a God who made you, knows you and loves you. He is right there just like those streetlights softly dotting light throughout the dark neighborhood. He is waiting for you to let Him in with His quiet, powerful majesty that changes everything with His light. Will you let Him? Maybe you’ve been in that darkness for so long that you forgot that God cares about you. He does. And everything can be different now.
Or maybe you are enjoying everything about life today because you know the joy of knowing God and what Jesus did for you. Don’t you love the reminder of how powerful and glorious God is when you see the sunrise each morning?! Let’s take time to thank Him today as we enjoy our day filled with the light that He has given us.
Here is Stellar Kart’s song to encourage everyone today. Because “Everything is Different Now.”
